Pylon - Free MP3

pylon-bandArchitects of a sound in the early '80s unlike any of their contemporaries, Pylon still sounds unlike anything else out there. The B-52s and R.E.M. have both gone on record as stating that Pylon are one of the best bands in the county, and listening to DFA's re-release of their legendary sophomore effort Chomp, it's evident why Pylon is still regarded as an icon of the legendary Athens, GA scene. Download the incredibly infectious "Beep" to hear the band at their very best, playing concentrated doses of post-punk that have inspired generations of followers ever since. And check their website for the music video of "Beep," edited by Pylon’s Michael Lachowski. It documents the band as they traveled the U.S. back in the day. (Photo: Laura Levine)
